Photo Of Graduate Carrying AR-10 On Campus Goes Viral

Posted: Updated:

A Kent State University graduate tweeted a picture of herself carrying a rifle along with her graduation cap which had the words “Come and take it.” The tweet has since gone viral

Kaitlin Bennett wrote in her post, “Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus. I should have been able to do so as a student- especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus. #CampusCarryNow”

The post was retweeted more than 2,000 times and had more than 1,000 comments some of which were in support and others in opposition to the tweet.

According to its website, the university has rules against students, faculty, and staff carrying any “deadly weapons.”

On Tuesday, Bennett tweeted another picture and captioned it, “I have no apologies for my graduation photos. As a woman, I refuse to be a victim & the second amendment ensures that I don’t have to be.”
